Technical fabrics maker Glen Raven and Ker-mel, a performance fibre manufacturer, joined forces to create GlenGuard FR, a flame resistant fabric for the industrial protective apparel market. Glen-Guard FR fabric is designed to result in protective garments that exceed safety standards and are more comfortable, durable and colour-fast. Glen Raven and Kermel spent more than two years on product development. Ker-mel’s unique fibre construction and Glen Raven’s fabric design expertise combined to yield a new flame resistant fabric that is softer and suppler, lighter weight, more colour-fast, and more abrasion resistant. GlenGuard FR fabrics exceed the strictest safety standards (NFPA 70E) for thermal and body burn protection and offer the best protection-to-weight ratio available for single layer garments.
